Of note is that the left tackle spot has been solidified, at least for now, by a freshman in Ului Lapuaho while the starting center position has been retained by Terrance Alletto. Wide receiver Ross Apo has also now broken the two deep after being limited during fall camp.

Of note defensively is that Michael Alisa is the second string weak side linebacker behind Bronson Kaufusi after making the switch back to linebacker this year. Also of interest is to note that Jordan Johnson and Robertson Daniel both are listed as the starters for the season opener. There was suspicion that both might be suspended for the season opener similar to Jamaal Williams, Devon Blackmon, and Marques Johnson. Coach Mendenhall commented about Johnson and Daniel saying “I would love for both of them to be able to start.”
